Wellness Coalition Formed

According to the 2010 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, Iowa is #19 in the nation when it comes to being physically, emotionally and mentally healthy. We know we can do better, so we plan to claim the #1 spot by 2016. It’s ambitious, but with help, we can help change Iowa and show the rest of the nation the road to wellness. Therefore, Fayette County is in the process of creating a Wellness Coalition, which includes representation from local schools, hospitals, businesses, recreation and fitness centers, among others. If you would like to learn more and become part of the healthiest state initiative in Fayette County, contact Joann Boyer, Fayette County Public Health, 563-422-6267.
